JULY MONTHLY HOROSCOPES 2021

Frederic Edwin Church, Alpine Scene in Thunderstorm, 1868

JULY ASTROLOGY 2021 


July opens with a tricky Mars Saturn opposition which sets the tone for the month as the two malefic aspect each other, each trying to have their way. Saturn in Aquarius has the upper hand, so the long slow game beats out any rush or major pushes ahead especially if they are coming from a place of passion or ego. A cool and detached head will win the race.

The eclipse has a strong draining or purging effect, be aware that what you have planned might get diverted or altered. This is temporary, and things bounce back by July. Venus helps by offering support and bringing out the best in people you interact with all month, helping to smooth over any issues.

AQUARIUS  / AQUARIUS RISING

Jupiter enters your money sector for the first time in 12 years, helping boost income and self-worth. Mercury’s retrograde, along with a solar eclipse in your creativity and love sector, means reassessment – unseen influences are at play.

PISCES / PISCES RISING

Jupiter is back in Pisces, and you’re adjusting to it being home after an absence of 12 years. It’s the beginning of a new cycle, boosting your confidence and sense of identity. Mercury’s retrograde and a solar eclipse in your home and family sector brings change, reassessment and progression. Not all of it can be seen or understood at the time. Know that matters related to your home and family are evolving.

JUPITER’S INGRESS INTO PISCES: BIG MAGIC

British Vogue : Image by Barry Lategan January 1983

JUPITER’S TRANSIT OF PISCES 

14 MAY – 29 JULY 2021 

Jupiter returned home to its domicile Pisces on Friday 14 May 2021; making it the first transit of Pisces in 12 years. This is a transit that many astrologers have kept an eye on due to its benevolent nature, after such difficult times. Who doesn’t love a benefic planet in its rulering sign? The last time Jupiter worked from such strength was 2019, when it was transiting Sagittarius its other ruling sign. 

Jupiter spends just over 2 months in Pisces before it retrogrades back into Aquarius before its moves back into Pisces in late December 2021. This is a little taster or beginning phase of this powerful transit. Looking to where you have Pisces in your chart allows you to see where this beneficence will manifest. 

Jupiter is a planet of optimism, knowledge, teachers, gurus, learnings, travel, gifts but also dogma and zealots. Pisces is a sign of creativity and encompassing of well, everything; while staying undefinable and elusive.  Notable that the hostilities in the Gaza strip, started 7 days out from the ingress of Jupiter into Pisces.

As exciting at this transit is and as wonderful as it is to have the greater benefic back at full strength. We must also look at the co-presence of Neptune during this transit of Jupiter in Pisces. As highlighted by the wonderful and talented Astrologer, Diana Rose Harper; Neptune’s co-presence in Pisces with Jupiter allows for a real danger of a rise in delusional belief’s, cult shit and a rise in charlatans. The presence of charlatan’s is age old and has been more noticeable as Neptune reached the mid-point of its transit in Pisces. Jupiter now adding to the equation, is prime picking for illusions of grandeur, cult like figure coming out of the woodwork and just plain old bad guru’s and teacher. Be mindful of who presents and don’t be sucked into things that are too good to be true, they probably are. The opportunity of them appearing now is real.

More to come, as these are first thoughts, observations and connections to other people’s observations. But in honour of Jupiter’s ingress we must celebrate that, it is goodit is exciting, but it also does have aspects that are multi-faceted. Pisces energy is easy to get lost in thanks to its encompassing nature. Like all transits, it’s never straight-forwards, but it is something to be excited about along with sticking to your core values so you can contain this massive, inspirational, creative energetic shift as we have now entered its portal. More to come … but the opportunity for ‘Big Magic’ is forming.

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 2021

From British Vogue

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 

FRI 12th FEB @ 6:16am AEDT 

23 ° Aquarius 

The New Moon in Aquarius will be one unlike any other, thanks to 6 of the 7 inner planets being in Aquarius at this lunation, creating a huge Aquarian stellium or line-up. This is rare and last occurred 59 years ago; feeding an extraordinary amount of planetary energy into the Aquarian sector of your chart/life. 

Aquarius, the water bearer is the provider and the support system, which is always working towards a point of wholeness or completion.  It is perhaps at this new moon; we can look to the Aquarian aspects of our lives with the intent to bring more support and structure into what we strive to complete or bring wholeness around these topics of life.  

Aquarian’s are individual within the collective, they hold their individuality and uniqueness, within the space of others; they are able to be themselves, whilst assisting others to help create community, it might just not be in the most traditional of ways. This new moon creates strong opportunity to workshop new pathways to evolve and sets up a deep incubation phase, of the Aquarian qualities of above and bringing them to life.

Venus and Jupiter conjoin at 12 °at this new moon, helping to harmonise the blending of big visions, optimism, new lessons and teachings, combined with attractive connection to those who you really vibe with. Jupiter fresh from his cazimi, helps to energize Venus, as she finishes her current cycle. Having the two benefic’s in-aspect at this lunation is a good thing, bringing in a more positive and optimistic flavour.

Mercury, still currently retrograde in Aquarius offers the benefit of reflection and insights. It’s only through looking back or re-looking at ourselves; we are able to know more clearly what we do or don’t seek. It also helps us see how we have progressed. Mercury still traveling through these back-water roads, offers introspection and reflection, as the Moon itself is at its darkest, helping to deepen the unseen or seeding of the experience.  

Finally, Saturn, the ruler of this lunation will be what remains after all these planets leave Aquarius and will hold to account; asking that you keep the contracts that you make at this time. Saturn will be making sure you keep promises or contracts, once all the benefits are optimism is gone. This will be key to your success. Saturn prefers a more striped back and simple plan, one that can be stuck to!  The good news is that Saturn works well in Aquarius, so it is creating a supportive and strong foundational base for these new explorations and developments.

FULL MOON IN LEO 2021

Image : Elina Kechicheva for Dior 

FULL MOON IN LEO : 29 January AEDT @6:15am

The Full Moon in Leo,  brings to the spotlight the Aquarius / Leo axis. The polarity of the group and the individual, the performer/performance and the audience and leadership and community. 

The Sun (and the ruler of this full moon), offers adulation and support; reflecting the receptiveness of your creations, ambition and leadership qualities at such time.  The Moon’s fullness, in Leo, helps to receive this adoration and embodying it, at the very least, allowing you to to be able to see it, in some shape or form. This lunation allows you to see the power of the reception to the work you do. It also shows the importance of creativity and brave leadership.

The only curveball to manage, is that this full moon is hooking into the Uranus Mars energy, via T-square. This brings in an unknown quantum to this full moon, meaning the previously mentioned, may come from unexpected places or areas that you don’t initially expect. Or at a time, that you don’t feel ready to shine your light.

Also occurring at the time of this Full Moon, is the Sun-Jupiter cazimi. Jupiter is considered the great beneifc in astrology, and a planet considered lucky, optimistic, wise, well educated, which attracts opportunity. The Sun and Jupiter exactly conjoining at this Full Moon, is a strong force, in addition to the lunation. Jupiter is sending the message of hope or optimism, in whatever mountains your currently climbing.

When the Sun and Jupiter exactly join, their energy is fused and the Sun’s strength, creates a rebirthing of Jupiter, through the great fires of the Sun. This cazimi, begins a new synodic or transit cycle for Jupiter. Old experiences and lessons are burnt away, and new opportunities and lessons are able to be forged or created. A new Jupiter is being born within this lunation.

The third major aspect at this full moon, occurs in the sign next to, or in aversion to this busy Leo / Aquarius axis. Venus and Pluto conjoining today, in Capricorn. Venus Pluto create a difficult combo, realisations around controlling relationships and power dynamics might be difficult to un-see, at this time. This occurs in addition to the above, which essentially allows for greater ease to see where you may have been bound or obsesses with something, that affects your ability to progress up the ladder or enjoy life.

All of the above combining to make a busy and active Full Moon in Leo, expect the unexpected and don’t be surprised if the Pluto Venus aspect, throws some deep undertow, to what on the surface is quite lovely and expansive. All this occurs the day before Mercury stations retrograde, also in Aquarius. Meaning the above might be something we mull over for at least the next 2 – 3 weeks.

Its both confronting and surprising, this Full Moon in Leo, however, leaning into the fundamentals of the Leo / Aquarius axis outlined in the first two paragraphs, can assist greatly, in your navigation of this Full Moon.

FULL MOON IN CANCER 2020

FULL MOON IN CANCER

Ingress into Cancer 29 December @ 09:25pm AEDT

Exact 30 DEC 2020 @ 2:28pm AEDT 

La Luna’s shift into Cancer, her ruling sign marks many milestones and is a poignant end to the remarkable and one in a lifetime astrology of 2020. As I sit and watch her rise and compose my words, by candlelight, at her ingress into Cancer, it’s quite something to try and articulate. As Luna comes to her annual Cancer full moon on the final days of 2020, its very apparent the dramatic shift, away from the stresses and pressure that have been applying to her over the past three years; with the fresh sense of a new fertile space beginning to reveal.

Luna in Cancer, this time around is lighter and the space created by three years of Saturnian pressure and its weight on Luna whist transiting Cancer, is very apparent. This is the first full moon in Cancer or any moon cycle in Cancer, without Saturn being in opposition of, since December 2017. As she rises in front of me, in her first cycle sans Saturn, the weights previously imposed and the spaces created, is quite something to absorb and process. This is the full moon, in which the extent of this long term pressure finally reveals itself.

Saturn is hard on the moon as their intentions and purposes are opposite in technique, aims and what they are trying to achieve. Both planets being strong due to their rulership meant every cancer moon for the past three years was imposed with the burdens, constrictions, restrictions and judgements of Saturn’s cold harsh rays. Cancer lunations were heavier and more burdensome. It is at this lunation we begin to see the strengths and our hard-earnt achievements since, Saturn’s ingress into Capricorn, Dec 2017. Other observations might be a new form of softness, especially around things that used to have a harder edge. Calling it an emotional slog is an understatement. If you have inner planets or angles on the Cardinal axis of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra or Aries, you would have felt this much more.

This lunation is also the first lunation after the recent eclipse series, on the Gemini and Sagittarius axis.  The solar eclipse on 15thDecember 2020 being particularly harsh and potent. I don’t know many people who weren’t touched by its intensity and dramatic overtones. Having a nourishing full moon such as this one, to close out the eclipse season helps to reconcile some of the difficult things that may have been thrown up during this eclipse season, as well as feeling like the cosmic hug we needed.

So, as we round out 2020 and experience its closing as well as getting our strong dignified Cancer Moon’s back, this really feels like the perfect antidote in washing way 2020 and all the trauma, allowing us to re-centre and recharge emotionally after what can only be described as a life changing year. Paying attention to tending to ourselves and our communities, and focusing on care, mothering and nourishment as we enter 2021 seems like the perfect astrological hint, to help guide us into a new and very different world for 2021.

THE GREAT CONJUNCTION OF 2020: THE CHANGING OF THE GUARDS

The first Air era since 1226, which also began with Jupiter and Saturn conjoining in Aquarius.

Exact conjunction 0645am AEDT

Look west into the evening sky after sunset, use Star Chart a free app if your unsure and want to double check you have the right planets. Can be viewed in the weeks either side of it, maximum closeness is the above dates.

The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn occurring under 12 hours after the solstice is perhaps the astrological event of the year.  The Solstice which occurs at Monday 21 December 8:53pm AEDT, followed by the exact conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn at 0645am Tuesday 22 December makes this a solstice for the ages. Who would expect anything less to helps to wrap up a remarkable and dynamic 2020? But in 2020 style, the 2020 conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn also offers that little bit extra!

Jupiter and Saturn, the two largest of the visible planets to the naked eye conjoin every 19.5 years, and as astrologer Austin Coppock remarked, they are the king makers of human history and its era’s; and the tent poles of history, under which we live. As human’s mark the movements of the Sun and the Moon to represent and follow time, this also extends to the Jupiter and Saturn conjunction, due to our ability to visually track it, along-side events and developments here on earth.  Humans have been observing the Jupiter and Saturn conjunctions for thousands of years. The most famous record of a reputed Jupiter Saturn conjunction are the reference to it as the Star of Bethlehem in the bible. Yes folks, the three wise men, were following the Jupiter Saturn conjunction, and it definitely created a crowning moment, no matter what your belief system is. So, these are important times, in which we currently live.

Jupiter Saturn conjunctions represent kings and empires, beginning and ends.  There cycle is predictable, due to the constancy of there synodic cycles and also represent a certain quality of time depending on what elemental era they are in.  Jupiter Saturn conjunctions have been the book markers and book end of history, for good reason, they are tried, and test and they works, as an astrological timing technique. Each era, whether it be Fire, Air, Water or Earth, all have a strong presence of the ruling element within the quality of time, to which people live. Fire ages have seen great renaissance in arts and traditions including the Italian Renaissance and Tudor England, and the Romantic era. Water eras have seen great spiritual movements etc.

The Solstice conjunction of these two kingly planets, begins and ends a 20- and 200-year cycle at the same time, beginning a cycle last seen 794 years ago. The solstice itself is a very significant day. It’s a marker of the imbalance of light and darkness and a day of which humans have literally built monuments like Stonehenge to. These two events coinciding ? Rare, like really rare.

Tomorrow’s conjunction marks the beginning of a 200-year cycle in Air, ending an earth cycle which began in 1842. Looking back across the earth age, we can see conquests, colonization of lands by organized and government mandated / centralized force. The plundering / mining of the earth for wealth and riches, which then got kept and managed in a hierarchical system and created empires because of the hoarded wealth from the earth and all its resources (i.e.: corporations/governments/institutions), we also need to mention the unscrupulous ways in which this wealth was taken.  Industrialisation also began on mass and changed the way we connect to earth and how we work with it.  Money and power was created by the complete raping and pillaging of the earth and its resources. As we leave the earth era, the earth is literally struggling for survival, due to the amount we have stripped from it and mis-managed pollution. These Grand Conjunctions will be in air signs until 2159. The last Air series of conjunctions began in 1226 (Aquarius). So let the journey begin.

When you look at the timelines of the history of these developments and the Jupiter Saturn conjunctions, the information is incredibly striking and is helpful to see where we may evolve to next. 

So, what is an air age and what does it look like? This is the first Air age in 800 years, and interestingly, tomorrows conjunction is the closest these planets get, in forming the conjunction also in 800 years, I don’t feel this is coincidence. 

Air ages are marked by disbursing of empires and wealth as well as creating more movement and freedom, through change and instability, this creates new pathways and new opportunity. Air ages have a more unpredictable flavour, through instability and a disbursing of power and control. Things we used to rely on may disappear, but through it, new alternatives are presented and ideas and intelligence/problem solving gets a real opportunity to explore and create new innovations and solutions, to the real problems we now face coming out of the earth age. 

Air ages can be marked with the term, created by Austin Coppock, as the age of “Disruptive Conquerors”. It is through these disruptive conquerors that the Air age changes and adapts the ways we live.  In previous Air ages, we had Genghis Khan create still to dates the biggest land empire created. He also establishes safety and strong connection, through the Silk Road, which fed and nourished trade, and is a trade route still in place today.  Genghis Khan did this by connecting many nomadic tribes. Nomadic tribes being tres Air, due to the constant movement in nature and quality. His conquests were the pinnacle of disruptive conquests, and he is still seen as one of the greatest conquerors in history.  We also in previous Air era’s saw the beginning of the fall of the Roman Empire after its peak. Alexander the Great, go through and connect and create the Hellenistic world, which didn’t last long after he died, but it still created information and connected to countries, who through the merging of ideas and information shared, through this Hellenistic world, we still look to today, as a source of information, and knowledge sharing, I’m looking at astrologers, with this one.

Through this disruption, we see more information and trade created, as the channels open up in different ways, and the control mechanism change. Looking forwards to what this might mean for us now, the internet and technology is definitely opening up the ways we live. The pandemic showed us how adaptable we are to remote learning or working from home. We no longer need to work or learn in centralized places. Notable news to come out recently, is the huge surges in Bit Coin values, a revolutionary digital currency, which is hard to ignore as we enter the Air age. We have seen the beginnings of lab grown meat becoming available to on mass and rise in popularity and availability, which reflects how technology is modifying the food chain.  Socially, technology has bridged the gap, in allowing us to connect to people, when we physically couldn’t.  When it comes to power and control, we can’t ignore the increased use of surveillance and drones, to track people and their movements. This will certainly increase. How is most of this conducted? Through the air waves, internet or literally in the air.

The previous Jupiter conjunction was in Taurus and 2000 (the last of the Earth cycle) and previous to this it was in Libra 1980/1981 (the first dip into the Air Cycle). Both these conjunctions were ruled by Venus. Consumerism and materialism really took off and Venus put pleasure and aesthetics front and centre for the past 40 years. Now we move into an Aquarius conjunction, we enter both an Air and a Saturn ruled conjunction. We will be looking at a more conservative and less pleasure oriented 20-year Jupiter Saturn cycle; perhaps to help solve the very pressing problems we face as we exit the Earth era and we look to solutions to the problems it has caused. 

The Great Conjunction, which is exact tomorrow following the Solstice, is marking the beginning of a new age, we are in a stage of transition and it will take a while for us to settling into it or work out, what real direction this is taking us. However, we do have the wonderful opportunity to watch them as they conjoin in the sky. We are fortunate enough to have the best view in 794 years or since 1226, coincidently, the last time we were in an Air age. Look west at nightfall and admire, being able to see such a momentous and historical moment, as we look to the planets and the future, they might herald. 

Enjoy! 

FINAL HOURS OF SATURN IN CAPRICORN

Less than 24 hours remains of Saturn in Capricorn for the next 28 years. Probably one of the harshest transits, tending towards highlighting the cool harsh realities of time, consequence, commitments and perseverance even in the most challenging conditions, Saturn In Capricorn is a cool and hard task master.

December 2017 – December 2020 is a good time to reflect over now as another transit of Saturn in Capricorn completes. Making sure u make strong commitments to yourself and your communities for its next 28 year cycle around the zodiac. Saturnian rewards are slow in revealing themselves and heavy in consequence; if not taken seriously and the necessary ground work put in.

The Moon conjoining Saturn as it leaves Capricorn, perfect for embodying these new commitments and personal contracts, as the clock is about to strike its own form of midnight. The lessons have been laid, now it time to walk forwards.

As we get set to bid you adieu, I would like to thank you Saturn, for all the cool hard challenges I have had to face and thank you for helping me address them head on, no matter what forms they presented to me in. Signed a late degree Capricorn Sun.
